Disco Elysium managers accuse ZA/UM shareholders of fraud as company says they were fired for misconduct

The Disco Elysium The situation has become even more chaotic as its former directors accuse majority shareholders of ZA/UM of fraudulent control of the company as the company says these employees were fired for misconduct.

Tütreke OÜ, an Estonian company working for Ilmar Kompus and Tõnis Haavel, became major shareholders in ZA/UM after it bought shares of Margus Linnamäe. Korvitz and Rostov said that everything was fine under Linamae, but that everything changed when Combus and Havel took over.

“Once they became majority shareholders, we were quickly removed from day-to-day operations, our business was terminated and our access to company information was suspended. Our dismissal came weeks after the start of soliciting documents and financial statements, which are still in progress to keep us.”

The two then go on to claim that “Tütreke OÜ must have fraudulently obtained control of Zaum Studio OÜ”. They state that they illegally used money from Zaum Studio OÜ itself to become the majority stakeholder with the help of another minority shareholder named Kaur Kender.

Corvettes, Rostov and their lawyers believe this calls for a sentence of up to three years in prison and that Havel, who they claim is the “leader of the group,” is He again commits fraud after an accident in 2007.

Despite talking to them repeatedly, things did not improve, so the company had to fire them, Robert [Kurvitz] It is said that he has been known to belittle women and co-workers in the past, but this was not known to the company before. It would be shortsighted for a growing international company to tolerate such behavior.”

GamesIndustry.biz’s sources spoke of “conflicting visions between Combus and Korvitz, saying he is a “company CEO who is planning on one side, and a toxic author on the other”.
